Consolidated Baptist District Association

Recommended Posts

The Consolidated Baptist District Association “CBDA” is a 141 year old baptist association in the Lexington, Kentucky area. Like minded BAPTIST Churches associate with this body pay paying an annual associational dues. 
 

The Consolidated Baptist District Educational Convention is a sister organization to the Association. The “CBDEC” is 139 years old and is a separate body with it’s own constitution. CBDA AND CBDEC are two separate bodies with separate boards and constitutions. 
 

Can these two bodies “consolidate”? The vote was taken to consolidate the “CBDEC” as an auxiliary of the “CBDA”. 


1. Would the “CBDEC” Educational Convention have to end its existence and then start as a newly created body under the CBDA? 
 

2. Would we simply be able to achieve the end goal (consolidation) by stating in the constitution of the CBDEC that they are an auxiliary of the CBDA? 
 

3. Would we need to seek legal advise on how to do this legally?

thanks!

See RONR p. 561 for the "How to" details.

Since both organizations are surely under various tax exempt laws -- they might even operate under different sets of exemption laws, one "religious" the other "educational" -- you should certainly consult with a lawyer who knows his/her way around those laws.

Yes.

Actually, with a consolidation, both organizations end their existence and a new organization is established. If it is desired for only one organization to end its existence, that is a “merger.”

This would not be a consolidation or a merger as RONR defines these terms, as there would still be two organizations, but one is an “auxiliary” of the other.

i don’t know that I fully understand what the goal is, however, so perhaps this would accomplish the organization’s goals.

If either of the two organizations is incorporated (which is likely), yes. If neither organization is incorporated, see RONR, 11th ed., pgs. 562-563.
